Choosing the right size Air Conditioning System
The time has come for you to upgrade, replace or just generally install a new air conditioning system. Great! Get ready for lower electricity bills in your future with a more efficient unit! A question that we regularly get pertaining installing a new system is “what size system should I get?” This is a very important question. If your new system is too small for your home, the system will continually run to keep up; resulting in high electric bills and may not be even able to cool your home at all. On the flipside, if you get a unit that is too large it will cool your home too quickly. AC systems are designed to run for periods of time, not in short bursts. Your AC system can short cycle and cause damage if it is too big for the home.
A few different factors can go into making this important decision. What is the square footage of your house? When was your house built? Do you own a single story or two-story home? How well is your home insulated? These are all important questions to have answered. At Sharp Air Conditioning & Heating, we can come out to your home and provide a free estimate for the right system for you.
